Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers bare concentric-lay-stranded conductors made from bare, hard-drawn, round, aluminum-clad steel wires for generail use of electrical purposes. This specification does not apply to stranded conductors for reinforcement in ACSR conductors. The conductors shall conform to the required values of breaking strength, nominal diameter and number of individual wires, conductor diameter, mass per unit length and electrical resistance.. Physical and electrical tests shall be performed on the wires before stranding.
